The Enemy Japan--The People

Joseph C. Grew introduces and narrates this film describing the effect of Shintoism and the Samurai code on the psychology of the Japanese people. Shows Emperor Hirohito reviewing Japanese troops; Tokyo street scenes and subways; theatrical dancing; brief scenes of radio and newspaper activities; peasants serving tea, pumping water, and washing clothes; the hand-threshing of grain and the hand-sawing of lumber; the home production of wooden articles; Japanese searching through debris after the 1923 earthquake; women working in a textile mill; the manufacture of truck bodies and engines; Hirohito arriving at a Shinto temple and children bowing at the shrine; 6- year-old children marching; Japanese field guns firing, rubble in a Chinese city, and refugees fleeing; Japanese children studying models of weapons; 16-year-olds drilling; a picnic held by students of a school of military government and colonial administration; 17-year-old Army inductees rising at reveille, eating breakfast, washing clothes, standing inspection, advancing as skirmishers in a drill, and practicing with bayonets; and Hirohito reviewing Army units.
